By H.P. Lovecraft
Illustrated by Pete Von Sholly
Introduction by S.T.
The Dunwich Horror is the story that hooked me on Lovecraft. The mystery of the Whateleys
and their ways, the character of Wilbur and the stunning revelation of his true self, the
verisimilitude of the setting and all the trappings work so well. It was in this tale that I
learned about Miskatonic University, the standing stones crowning many lonely New England
hilltops, the eerie truth about whippoorwills, and [of] course the Necronomicon of the Mad Arab,
We even get a nice juicy quote from that forbidden tome that tells us much about
our place and the place of our own planet in the terrifying cosmic scheme of things. The ending
works like a knockout punch and the lore and legend of Dunwich, both the town and its strange
geography replete with rumbling hills build to it like a masterfully orchestrated score worthy
of Erich Zann.
